Bypass it for now.  Use 5/8" barbed fitting - I think hose splice connector 
will do.  I have used copper pipe elbow before - double clamp both ends.

The pump housing can be cleaned up and repaired with high temp epoxy, 
providing the housing is not actually cracked or broken.  Make sure it is a 
good repair since as you know this can leave you stranded.

The After run turbo pump let go in my car.  First time I had to tow the car
in ages.

Can I repair the sprays from the center of what appears to be
two plastic discs?

Can I temporarily by-pass the pump?

Or, should I just go ahead and order a new one before digging in.....

As always,
Thanks, Steve]
